are working on a plan as well. let's start with ranking of the armed services committee, john mccain. welcome, senator mccain. you have spent a great deal of time in your career working on immigration issues. when do you think you can get this bipartisan plan out, and how much can you tell us about what's in it? >> well, we're going to be announcing the principles that will be guiding our translation of it into legislation. we've still got a lot of hard work ahead, but i'm very pleased with the progress. frankly -- >> you're announcing this week? >> yeah, we'll be -- senator menendez and i and senator schumer, senator graham, senator durbin and some -- we are -- we've been working together for some weeks now. we'll be coming forward. it's not that much different from what we tried to do in 2007. martha, what's changed is honestly is that there is a new i think appreciation on both sides of the aisle, including maybe more importantly on the republican side of the aisle, that we have to enact a comprehensive immigration reform bill. we've been -- >> so this is comprehensive. it's not piecemeal.

, and they will probably present that plan this week. we'll be talking to senator john mccain, senator bob menendez. they're working together on this plan. whether president obama detracts from the plan by going out on the road, going to nevada on tuesday, we're going to ask him about that, as well. >> interesting theory by just being associated with the plan it could drive some people away from the plan in congress. complicated dynamic. let's talk about this extraordinary interview, the joint interview, the first time it's happened with president obama and hillary clinton sitting down talking to "60 minutes." the whole thing airs tonight. i wonder is there talk in washington this isn't in some ways president obama picking favorites in the race to replace him in 2016 because joe biden is also talking about maybe running. >> reporter: that's right, and, you know, joe biden isn't sitting right next to the president in that interview. i don't think president obama has ever done an interview sitting next to anybody but his wife. so you bet there's a lot of talk about that, and we'll talk to our powerhouse ro

of a bipartisan deal on immigration reform that includes the man you spoke with yesterday, senator john mccain. >> reporter: exactly. there's an announcement scheduled for this afternoon from this bipartisan group of senators about agreement in principle on some pretty sweeping changes of immigration law. and frankly, a lot of optimism, this could be passed even with a very controversial path to citizenship for those in the country illegally. senator john mccain telling your "this week" show yesterday, he thinks the time is right, especially given the power of latino voters in the last election. >> lot of momentum behind that now. >>> let's get the rest of the morning headlines from david muir, weekend anchor in for josh. >>> good morning, everyone. we're going to begin this morning with the search for answers after that horrific nightclub tragedy. at least 230 people were trapped and killed in a fire that engulfed a packed dance club in brazil. the club with just one exit became a death trap in seconds. matt gutman is in brazil with new details on how the fire started and why there was no oth

defense that did not satisfy senator john mccain. >> why do we care? because if the classified information had been included, it gives an entirely different version of events. >> reporter: like mccain, there were some republicans who hillary clinton did not convince. but this was certainly a memorable way to close out her tenure, george. >> and a memorable day, today, coming up, martha. the ban on women in combat going to be formally lifted by leon panetta. it will be a big part of his legacy. but it's also something that's being pushed hard by the military itself, the joint chiefs of staff. >> reporter: true. it was actually the joint chiefs, the marine, the army and other services. but what this reflects is, the reality of the last decade of war. well more than 100 women have died in iraq and afghanistan, where the front lines have blurred. but it does take it to a new level. they could officially be part of infantry units and special forces, if they meet the physical standards. >> and that means more women in top leadership positions in the military, as well. >> reporter: that's exactly

% of the hispanic vote and john mccain did better than mitt romney so republicans in very recent history were doing a lot better with it and pay a lot of attention to the policies so i think they're still listening. >> you're nodding your head, math dowd. >> they have to see at the the way the country looks today. the night after election, the problem is they're a mad men party in a modern family world and hispanic think republicans right now don't want to look at the country as 21st century but 1950s. let's go back to the 1950s. the problem the republicans have though many want to compromise and many want to do on this issue, there's a very loud shrill part of their base, huge part of their base that says no, no, no, and if they compromise on guns, if they compromise on taxes and then they compromise on immigration, it leaves them in a bad place with that base. >> that's the issue on the republican side. let me go back to david. you praised the president as the promise unleashed. climate change and you have immigration reform and guns which he also says now is at the top of his list. how does he p
